Happy Independence Day! Celebrating the Bay’s own Joey Chestnut

In about 10 minutes, Joey Chestnut will try to win the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest for the sixth time. I am really hoping he does it again.

Joey Chestnut attended SJSU and is one of the most famous people to come out of the school. (I guess that’s pretty awesome.) I don’t even care for competitive eating but because of Chestnut’s roots, it has caught my attention every year on Independence Day.

Can’t get more American than stuffing your face with hot dogs on a holiday!
